Ignazio Bettua – Uccellini
More than 150 ‘Uccellini’ (little birds) frolic on the eaves of the church, sometimes accompanied by their real-life feathered friends. This colourful flock is a poetic homage to St Francis of Assisi, to whom this church is dedicated. This is a temporary installation. In October 2019 it will take flight, migrate to new skies, and colonise other Franciscan monuments across Europe.
